Normally I tend to just use any shampoo that is in the bathroom. Usually this means shampoos that are on special offer in the supermarket as my mum gets the shampoo and I don't really pay attention to which shampoo she buys.
I have however found that using head and shoulders has really relieved some of the itchy and scratchiness I get from dandruff. I also have a dry and tight scalp which really feels uncomfortable. Head and shoulders also makes my hair smooth and looking healthy. This means not only is my scalp healthy but my hair is looks and feels healthy as well.
My mum decided to get Pantene Pro V smooth and sleek as there was a special offer on it. It was 2 for £5 from superdrug with a normal price of £3.99 and she got 4 so she got 10% off making it £9 for 4. This works out as £2.25 for a 500ml of the shampoo. Pantene is a premium brand in my opinion and it's not a budget or mid range shampoo.
The shampoo claims to make hair frizz free, leaving hair smooth and silky. As I have brunette hair and I do not colour my hair I don't needed a shampoo that helps with colour retention. I do however experience my hair becoming static when I dry my hair. As I have straight hair and not curly hair it doesn't become frizzy but instead it becomes static. I also would like my hair to look silky as it can get dry during the colder months.
The shampoo works like all other shampoos in that the hair is damp and then shampoo is messaged on to the scalp and the hair. The shampoo lathers up nicely and the shampoo rinses off well without leaving any residue. I have found that with some shampoos it takes really long for the shampoo to wash off and if it's not done thoroughly then some is still left on the hair.
The shampoo does not make my hair any less static, in fact I think it makes it worse. My hair does feel smooth and silky and it is slightly better than Head and shoulders even if I use conditioner. Unfortunately after using this shampoo I have experienced more of the symptoms associated with dandruff. The shampoo does smell quite nice, although most shampoos do.
So the shampoo failed to make my hair less static even though it did make it silky. For me it is more important that my scalp does not fell tight or itchy so I prefer to use Head and Shoulders.
If you are looking for a shampoo that makes hair smooth and silky then this will do that but for those with tight scalps and those prone to dandruff, this is a really good choice.
